I recently returned from my 3 month trip overseas, and it is certainly bittersweet to be home. While abroad, I visited 5 different countries, each beautiful in its own right. Since I was only in most countries for a weekend, I had to pack light. Checking bags at the airport is tres expensive, and a student on a budget should try to avoid it. So instead, I brought a single backpack with me, which proved to be super convenient. By going on several different trips, I learned what was a necessity and what was just a waste of much needed space. I'll share with you my top 3 of each! 

I just returned from an amazing trip to Amsterdam! Besides the reputation it has for things that are normally illegal, it is hands down one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. 

An amazing fall day frolicking through the Stables Markets in Camden Town. Feeling like an indie movie.
